I really feel kind of out of touch, especially if someone wants to tell a joke about a commercial or something.
But they usually give me this embarassed look when I mention that I dont have a TV.
Am I wrong to assume that most people realize that television has been nothing but a bane to civilization and original thought, yet do nothing about it?
I'm actually paying (partially) for cable. And my roommates have it in their rooms... but I never watch... I don't even miss it (except ESPN... I REALLY miss ESPN)
I have several Pimsleur language courses (Japanese really isn't that hard...), a lot of music, dumbbells and parallettes in my room.
Unlike most college students I can actually find time to read recreationally, not just shit for class.
I might even start playing guitar again or take up piano.
I'm actually watching my vast (and i mean vast) collection of MMA instructionals. I didn't even know that I had Dan Gable's wrestling instructionals (hah)...
I encourage you to take a month or two without television. You'll probably find that you get more done during the day, communicate more with your family (i actually call home which is completely unheard of), hell you'll probably get more sleep (I know I do).
Anyway back to my Econ homework...
